The Chargé in the Dominican Republic (Hinkle) to the Secretary of State

85. Legation’s telegram No. 83, May 30, 3 p.m. Doctor Troncoso later in the day called me to say he had talked over the matter with General Trujillo who stated that he wished to reiterate his desire to cooperate in this and any other way and that whenever the officers arrive he himself would undertake conversations with them at his house accompanied possibly by an aide. The President said that General Trujillo welcomed having the conversations under the auspices of the Chief of Mission and that the matter would be kept in strict confidence between himself, General Trujillo and myself.
